with the loss of our four colleagues in benghazi and the state department, greet the families and the bodies, and she declined to do it. it wasn't what i had planned for that weekend originally, but i don't regret doing that, brian. i think when you're a diplomat and a public official and a tragedy happens and it is related to the work that you do, it's our obligation to try to explain it as best we can to the american people, and that's what i did. >> did you want the job? >> i would have been very honored to serve in that job, just as i'm delighted to do what i'm doing. but yes, sure. how can you not want to -- in my field -- serve at the highest possible level? >> i tell you what, hillary clinton, i'm sure she was tired. we all get tired. she works around the clock. but you know what she was doing. >> yeah. >> hillary, that's the political experience. you see it in the corporate world, the political world, the pros that have been around the block a few times. >> decline. >> they know when to step aside. and this is -- i've seen this happen in washington time and time again. i saw it on th
. jenna: breaking information in the benghazi terror investigation, as we await news from a bipartisan classified briefing on that deadly attack back on september 11th when terrorists killed four americans, including our ambassador to libya. we are staking out the hearing if case any lawmakers decide to talk. catherine herridge will bring us a live report a little later on in the show. >> reporter: i want to go live to the president who is speaking before a group of business leaders, let's listen in. >> it's good to be back at the business roundtable. jim, thanks for your leadership. originally my team had prepared some remarks, they always get nervous when -- when i'm out there on my own, you never know what i might say. but given the dialogue that we had the last time i thought it was useful for me to abbreviate my remarks, speak off the cuff at the top and spend most of our time just having a conversation. let me begin by saying that all of you in this room are not just business leaders, not just ceo's of your companies, but you're also economic leaders and thought leaders in this c
of the crisis in libya, and the attack in benghazi that killed ambassador chris stephens. >> i didn't want to see a confirmation process that was very prolonged, very politicized, very distracting, and very disruptive. because there are so many things we need to get done as a country. >> massachusetts senator john kerry and former republican senator chuck hagel of nebraska are now considered the front-runners to replace hillary clinton when she officially steps down. >>> in oregon, the shopping mall that became the scene of a deadly shooting rampage days ago is set to reopen this morning. a candlelight vigil for the victims will be held tonight. two people were killed and the 15-year-old girl was wounded when 22-year-old jacob roberts opened fire inside the clackamas town center on tuesday. roberts then killed himself. there is still no motive for the shooting. >>> a much calmer day is in store for san diego after a pounding rainstorm drenched that city. the rain came down so fast and furious, in fact, it flooded businesses and major intersections, leaving drivers stranded in the road. som
about benghazi. she's a consumer of it and therefore that -- this qualifies her to be secretary of state on fox news. i mean i don't know how much more black and white the hypocrisy -- >> stephanie: as you and others have pointed out, the iraq war obviously cost us god knows how much blood and treasury in the final analysis. the benghazi attack, as horrible as it was compared to the iraq war, not even close right? >> right. so condy rice helped initiate a war plus $3 trillion, 4,000 american lives untold number of iraqi dead and susan rice was reacting to a terrorist attack that killed four americans and in the eyes of the republicans eyes of fox news and the eyes of the right wing crazies these are now equal events. it is -- thankfully, the whole thing seems to have petered out. it has been one of the most frustrating and maddening smear campaigns we've seen in awhile. >> stephanie: it really is. a woman of such obvious inelect and capability and it -- >> also mentioned last week, you know, g.o.p. gets absolutely s
and protection at that compound location in benghazi. mike rogers, the intelligence chairman on the house side, he said that what i find absolutely gross negligence -- gross negligence is that they did not take the right precautions. meaning that the state department or the administration did not give the ambassador that kind of protection that he apparently was looking for. reporter: yes, you have the whistleblowers to testify on capitol hill. we talked to them as well. it is a three act tragedy. you have the security that was not there before them. you have the response during seven-hour firefight. and many of the questions about how it was characterized afterwards. there are many questions about benghazi that have yet to be fully answered. these hearings and the continued focus on capitol hill, i think it is going to stay in the forefront, at least it will continue to cover it. if ambassador rice is nominated, i guarantee you that it will still get coverage elsewhere as well. jon: i'm sure you'll be talking about it tonight. bret baier will talk about it on a special report 6:00 o'clock eas
to close down the cia annex in benghazi? >> reporter: it's worth contrasting the status of the consulate with that. while the consulate site has never been secured, fox news is told that the cia annex in benghazi was shuttered by september 12th less than 24 hours after the attack. all classified information was removed or pwurpbld. burned. the decision to close down the annex same at 5:15 local time when the annex took fire from two mortars. the process began the night before after the consulate was attacked in the evening hours. the initial stages of the agency's proscribed evacuation kicked in as a cautionary step. once it was clear they could not sustain their position that was wrapped up and they were able to get everything out, classified information, either moved or destroyed by about 7:00am local time. so the contrast is that within hours the cia was able to close down their operation, and that consulate has never been secured by any u.s. personnel, jon. jon: and it's almost three months later and still all of these questions. >> reporter: that's correct, uh-huh. jon: thank you, c
was responsible for the attack in benghazi? >> aqim played a role, the discussions are under way about how aqim members interacted with others and those are questions better left to a closed session. >> we'll try to arrange that at an appropriate period of time. on that same point you acknowledge that u.s.-africa command is coordinating with ecowas on planning for an intervention in the north. i guess that should be said, a potential intervention in the north. is that correct? >> it's correct to say that the intervention is not planning phases at this point. the intervention would be led by the maliian armed forces with support from the international military force. there is no construct or intention of having a u.s. boots on the ground type of support to that intervention but at this point we're providing planning support exclusively and we'll look at opportunities to provide support to those partners with whom we can engage. >> your statement said the mission will have kuhl objectives of establishing maliian sovereignty and confronting al qaeda. do you think the people you're training will be
in benghazi. it was involved in attacks and planned attacks in europe. a lot of people forget they tried, actually in the 1990s to fly a plane in the eiffel tower much like what happened in new york on 9/11. so it's a very, virulent group that certainly threatens us and our allies. jenna: your expertise on this, peter, what do you think about our military intervention? we'll explain what that means in a moment. what do you think about us getting involved here? is this a good decision now with the tiling? what your thoughts? >> we need to recognize the threat and we need to prepare to do something but we need to really prepare the terrain. i'm very concerned that we're rushing into something that's very half-baked. the african force that is talked about is a little over 3300 men. which is a laughable amount when you're talking about an area the size of texas. it is not a serious force. so they need our help. they need some training but they're not adequate. so until there's really commitment to put a force in there, that can actually do something, we run the risk of jumping into something
we have any evidence that al qaeda was responsible for the attack in benghazi? >> aqim played a role, the discussions are under way about how aqim members interacted with others and those are questions better left to a closed session. >> we'll try to arrange that at an appropriate period of time. on that same point you acknowledge that u.s.africa command is coordinating with ecowas on planning for an intervention in the north. i guess that should be said, a potential intervention in the north. is that correct? >> it's correct to say that the intervention is not planning phases at this point. the intervention would be led by the maliian armed forces with support from the international military force. there is no construct or intention of having a u.s. boots on the ground type of support to that intervention but at this point we're providing planning support exclusively and we'll look at opportunities to provide support to those partners with whom we can engage. >> your statement said the mission will have kuhl objectives of establishing maliian sovereignty and confronting al qaeda. do
